Now, passengers have the option to use the regular cash lanes available at the tollway, or they can also use the Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) tag that can be used in all 42-kilometer toll roads from Santo Tomas, Batangas to Batangas City.

Star Tollway Corp., the operator of the Star Tollway, hopes this will reduce waiting and transaction time at toll plazas not just on regular days but also holidays.

“We encourage motorists to utilize the Autosweep RFID access as mode to pay their toll fees. This is one of the plans that we are implementing in order to lessen hassle and ensure faster travel. We are more optimistic that with the inclusion of the Star Tollway into San Miguel Infrastructure’s Autosweep RFID system, we will be able to handle vehicle volumes at a faster rate,” Star Tollway said.

What’s an RFID system?

An RFID system works by reading intelligent bar codes that are embedded in RFID tags and cards. These codes “talk” to a network system so it tracks every RFID-equipped vehicle that passes through a tollgate equipped with the said system..
